Outdoor Classroom Day

Oak Class enjoyed getting involved with the global movement ‘Outdoor Classroom Day’. We started our day by going on a nature hunt, recording our findings by sketching and drawing what we found. After break, we continued our outdoor learning by exploring mark-making, collecting as many different types of rubbings as we could using oil pastels. We even came across a toad on our travels. Well spotted Max! We then brought the outdoors in and worked as a team to create a collaborative piece of Art using our rubbings.


The British Hedgehog Preservation Society!

The children supported BHPS by making Hedgehogs and bringing awareness to the charity! It was a lot of fun and a little messy… We had a great afternoon!

English: The Journey

The Journey by Francesca Sanna

As the children entered the classroom after break, they were met by Mrs. Tranter with a message to go outside and find two suitcases that were left for them. Quickly and quietly, they left the classroom and found two suitcases in the playground. The children opened the suitcases to find many objects and they discussed where they were from. They were left a note, which explained where the suitcases were from. The children really enjoyed the investigation!

Activity: Jumpers

The children were asked to measure the circumference of their thigh muscle and the length of their leg. They headed outside to measure the length of their jump, to investigate whether the size of their thigh muscle made a difference to the distance they could jump.



Oak Class- What a Mess!!

Apologies to all parents for the state of Oak Class following yesterday’s lesson involving clay! The children had great fun creating ’round houses’ as part of our lessons on about Anglo-Saxons. They created ‘wattle and daub’ to make the structures of their houses and lolly sticks to add support. Next we will complete the roof of the houses and look forward to sharing them with you.

In the meantime, we do hope that you all managed to get the clay out of their uniforms. Following an outstanding effort from Mrs Guy, Oak Class has now returned to some normality!

Oak Swimming

Well done to all of the ‘Superstar Swimmers’ in Oak Class who have completed their swimming awards. The children have worked hard this term to achieve their awards which will presented upon their return to school following the Easter break.



Science Week

The children had a wonderful time during Science Week this term. All classes completed their own scientific investigations recording the results and considering further investigations leading on from their findings.

As part of our Science week we enjoyed a visit from Shooting Stars Circus Skills. ‘Jebb the Jester’ was on hand to thrill us all with spectacular interactive entertainment that taught us all we would wish to know about forces.

The children then enjoyed class workshops during which they experienced a range of superb activities linked to science.






Dogs Trust

Oak Class enjoyed a visit from Dogs Trust this  term. The children learned how to behave around dogs and when to recognise that dogs are distressed. The children learned the appropriate responses to canine behaviour, and even enjoyed some role play!

Many thanks to Alison for taking the time to visit us in school.



Branching Databases

During Computing this term the Oak Class have been exploring Branching Databases. This week the children explored Yes and No questions and how this can help to classify a group of objects. We considered the many different uses of this system and how it can help us during everyday life.
